Hi. My 54 year old husband has been going through it. He has been treated for abdominal pain for several years--then dx of diverticulitus. In the past 3 months, it's become much worse, constant severe pain, he says it feels like rayzor wire. He has diarrhea several times or more a day. Got the dx of IBS, was put on meds that made it worse. So off those meds. Lost 24 pounds in 4 weeks, then 14 in one week. Second cat scan (in 3 months) showed a very enlarged lymph node (Gastroenterologist said it did not look like it could be benign), and five "lumps" in the mesenteric. So, endoscopy with ultrasound and fine needle biopsy. And loads of blood work to rule out various cancers.
Got results today that the biopsy is benign, blood tests ok except indicators for pancreatic cancers were on the 'high side,' but not of concern.
Pain is severe, wakens him--usually manages to stay in bed less than 2 hours. Poor appetite, feels like he just can't eat. Very pale skin. This week, he's lost 8 pounds. He tells me he wishes he could bottle whatever it is for a weight loss treatment.
Now I'm waiting for a surgeon to call to do an exploratory. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

  • i hada similar thing docs thought i was crazy. But the anser was changing my diet. I would not eat anything fried, no suger, no potatoes, only meat, vegetables, and ezekiel bread or man bread. both breads are a sprouted grain bread that is more easily digestable.

  • Are you familiar with Far Infrared Heat, it's a very penetrating heat that's very positive for our bodies. You speak of pale skin & Bloating Belly, (I think we are all familiar with when our skin & yellow eyes:), that's liver, not sure on white skin, did you ask the doctor or google White Skin to see what you can find? Diarhea is the body wanting to get out stuff that doesn't belong in us.....we either get Diarrhea or Throw- up to get rid of stuff when it's really needing to come out, like now. We all learn from Babies, when they have Diarrhea, it's very important to not get Dehydrated & also take stuff for our electrolytes. My Dad had memory loss last year & also had lost his appetite. I put him on my favorite Nutritional product that is getting good liquid Nutrition down him. I never worried about him, as I knew I was flooding his body with Nutrition. Over 6 months his appetite came back and his ability to remember better, we also notice he improved over 12 months. From what I saw with me and my parents, when our bodies our weak & not functioning like they should be, we just have to learn what fuel our bodies need. My parents 'old' Dr. (they don't go to him now) as they were over Medicated and sleeping allll the time. That M.D. thought I was crazy but I knew how well things worked on me. Now I also know how well my parents improved. Bottom Line, if what you are doing isn't working, then it's time to learn & change to doing something else. I can't say it enough, our bodies are an Amazing piece of equipment, if they have the right fuel, they run very well! Our bodies want to be healthy, I think they say, it's all in our DNA. I think the DNA is our smart Keys, if we give our bodies what they need, our body, if balanced right with what it needs, can heal & repair all within our Internal smart system. 13 years ago, I survived AdenoCarcinoma of the Cervix, with being taught this way of thinking, since then I have continued to learn & grow. With the internet at your fingertips and people to communicate with, the door is open for you to learn! Also, you might locate someone in your area that does energy work. Dr's think this is crazy but they used to think Chiropractors & Acupucture were crazy, now both of those are becoming a comfort method available for choice with Insurances. I hope this helps give you a new way of thinking. Sincerely,ADENOSURVIVOR:) Hi. My 54 year old husband has been going through it.
